ambassador. well, obviously that's what the obama administration is doing. >> you have a lot of fodder for your weekend show, so we'll be watching it and also for suzanne malveaux's shows which is up and coming. thank you for taking the time to be on our show today. fareed zakaria, and as i sign off, i do want remind you "newsroom international" starts right now with suzanne malveaux. >> kuhn dem the president for leading from behind, declaring it is time to change -- criticized the obama administration for not having an overall strategy in this region, and here's how he summed it up. the know the president hopes for a safer, freer, aligned middle east with us. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. we can't support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. >> now, wolf, we know he was referring to a lot of the protests around in the region, and even the killing of the u.s. ambassador in benghazi, libya, but when you listen to what he is saying here, how much of it do you think is about a failed strategy or what is simply o
-state solution, free trade, going after terrorists in libya, has been pursued by the obama administration. they're out with an aggressive prebuttle. >> reckless. amateurish. that's what republicans called mitt romney's gaffe filled tour of england, israel and poland, when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, showed a lack of presidential character. if this is how he handles the world now, just think what mitt romney might do as president. >> in a statement, liz smith says quote it's clear on every measure, mitt romney fails the commander in chief test. well, just about two hours from now, romney will deliver that speech at virginia military institute. peter alexander is traveling with the romney campaign in lexington, virginia and joins me now and peter, this is a speech that is largely about the middle east. we're not hearing a lot about asia, a lot about russia. this is really going to be focused on syria, iran, libya and afghanistan. is it not? >> yeah, i think you're exactly right. going to focus on the middle east and northern africa, libya specifically. mitt romney as you noted, wil
profoundly unhelpful with syria and the obama administration has called the russians out on that. on iran, the russias were instrumental in getting us the u.n. security council resolution in 2010, that put in place unprecedented administrations that the bush administration could only have dreamed of. >> i have to leave it there. former member of the administration, thanks for coming on. >> happy to be here. >>> wall street hit a five-year high. market rundown is next. plus, critical county. live in ohio. one of those 15 counties that may decide the presidential election. but first, today's trivia question. who was the first vice president to not become president? tweet me the answer. first correct answer will get a warm bucket of spit from us. no, the answer and more is coming up. we'll be right back. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 let's talk about low-cost investing. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 at schwab, we're committed to offering you tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 low-cost investment options-- tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 like our exchange traded funds, or etfs tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 which now have the lowest tdd#: 1-800
-aircraft and anti-armor. >> rose: that's a distinction from the obama administration according to the -- >> right. i think the nuclear weapons capability line with iran. that seems to be different because the president's always talked about we're not going to contain an iran with nuclear weapons. mr. romney seems to be saying we're not even prepared to get that close. obviously the devil's in the details. >> rose: so governor romney's red line may be earlier than president obama's red line. >> exactly right. i actually thought one other thing was interesting which is he talked about our relationship with most of the arab countries. the egypts and others, the libyas. what he essentially laid out was called a conditional foreign policy. essentially saying, look, the era where we gave aid to you all and you act as you see fit is over. we will continue to work with you but only so long as you meet us halfway, whether it's the way you treat women, girls and minorities, your foreign policy more broadly against israel and terrorism. i think that's an important statement and one that people in both parties
states" was a very interesting and important one. i think that the obama administration would say, look, if there was no daylight the israelis might well have taken military action by now and the u.s. would be sucked into it. the u.s. would have to join it. so there has been daylight, but the daylight in the obama administration's view has been intended to say to the israelis, "look, we're not at the point yet where they're about to get a bomb, there are other possibilities, including more sanctions and more sabotage." >> rose: prime minister netanyahu would welcome this speech? >> by and large yes. but there were some interesting statements that i'm not sure if the word would be "welcome." when governor romney talked about a two-state solution in the middle east and talked about a prosperous and secure independent palestinian state, that was interesting to me because given some of his previous comments people may have wondered whether he represented something of a departure and that to me was his way of saying look, i'm in the mainstream on important issues, i'm in the mainstream on th
? >> he was referring to what he called the weak reaction from the obama administration to the uprising, if you will, in iran, a couple of years ago, when there were protests. people were angry and the u.s. was on the sidelines, the president did not directly speak out and the explanation that the administration at the time gave was that the opposition didn't want this to appear to be the opposition to the ayatollahs, standing up in iran, with the backing of united states. that could have been counterproductive. as a result, the obama administration was pretty silent. at the time now where romney is going after him on that, i think there were a few areas where there were some significant differences, but on the whole, after you get through some of the angry rhetoric, there is a lot of agreement between obama and romney, one area of disagreement on arming the syrian rebels. another area of disagreement, how far will iran be able to go in its nuclear weapons capability, the capability of developing a bomb as opposed to actually having a bomb. and the third was on russia. he twice in a spe
three guys named, ken lay, the head of enron. but here's the problem. obama administration didn't take down ken lay. he was taken down during the bush administration. kozlowski was prosecuted during the bush administration. bernie madoff, his son turned him in under the bush administration. where are the heads of j.p. morgan and country wide, all these companies that caused that epic collapse, also under the bush administration? did they get prosecuted under the obama administration? the definitive answer is hell no. they didn't get prosecuted so much, president obama couldn't find a single one prosecuted under his watch that he could put in that ad. so what's sad is unfortunately president obama isn't that much better than mitt romney on this issue. i wish he was tough on wall street so that that ad could make a ton of sense. look is mitt romney going to let off wall street even more? of course! of course! he's going to get rid of dodd frank. it's incredibly weak and mitt romney instead of wanting weak regulations wants none. is it right to compare sesame street and wall street? absol

that they ought to be focusing on, the obama administration? >> well they have been and we know from scott rasmussen today that the consumer confidence over the weekend shot up and boom, the president's ratings have gone up overnight since yesterday they've gone up because of that jobs number. >> yeah, that is huge. i think the president will use that. joe biden will use it in the debate. but ultimately the president believes he will win with negative because he doesn't have is a record to run on or defend. dagen: does mitt romney need to sit back and hope the president just makes some huge error at this point? >> i think he's got to keep doing what he's been doing which is to be as john said positive on the campaign trail, dagen, but also make it clear there's an alternative approach to failed policies. dagen: how do you think wednesday shakes out? what are the odds you putting on biden making a huge gaffe because that's the reason people will watch frankly. >> better than even odds that he will say something that he shouldn't say that will be a news item. and i think seriously i think th
the obama administration. so, what could a romney presidency do differently than what we have witnessed? >> well, you know, there's a good argument that much of this will be political rhetoric. it clearly no one thinks that employing convention power against iranian nuclear facilities is a way to move forward. nobody want it is israelis to attack with conventional military power at this time. and by the way, i think the iranians are going nuclear regardless of the stranglehold on them. governor romney's in a tenuous position. he won't want to provide a clear alternative. the american people won't vote for a war. >> all right. so one thing i think a lot of people will remember if they've seen the now infamous secret tape. 47% remark in florida where mitt romney did discuss the current situation in the middle east and the wording he used in reference to that saying, we just have to live with certain things that are going on there. the cycle of violence that we have been seeing. now calling for beginning anew. kind of an etch-a-sketch moment for the foreign policy initiative, the leadershi
an influential coal miners union says it won't endorse president obama's slamming the administration's war on coal. will this be a deciding factor in the election? >>> houses of millionaires collecting unemployment checks? does that make sense to you? even when they say it's not it is always about money. melissa: so here's look at the day's market headlines. spain's prime minister denying speculation that a spanish bailout request is imminent. stocks pared early session gains following the news and the dow closed down 32 points on the day. >>> a mixed picture for u.s. auto sales in september. chrysler posted a strong 12% year-over-year gain. general motors saw a tepid 1.5% advance and ford sales were basically flat. >>> shares of metropcs skyrocketed nearly 18%. deutsche telekom's t-mobile is reportedly in talks to merge with metropcs. >>> the big story all night and all day, the new york's attorney general hits jpmorgan with a civil lawsuit over mortgage-backed securities. it will be the first of what could be a long line of lawsuits. the crux of the case which bear stearns purchased by j
differences between what a romney ad administration would look like and another four years of president obama might look like? >> even for a person who doesn't think badly of president obama's foreign policy i think it was useful because it reinforced america's need for engagement in the world. general scales was correct, there is military aspect to that which i personally may not consider necessary but i welcome the general tone of more engagement even if i don't think defense spending going up and. tired of wars. tired of unrest. discouraged by the anti-americanism, seen throughout broader islamic world and mood of come home america. let's mend our own problems and heal our own wounds for a while. that is understandable and partly i think right, if we take it too far we can get ourselves into trouble. governor romney arguing not for just more military spending but more effective foreign aid. better coordinated. arguing for a word dare i say sounds like nation-building. places like libya where he wants to do more to help countries get on their feet after revolutions before they have been thr
top jobs in three administrations most recently in the obama administration but also for the former presidents bush, one and two, i think. >> bush one, reagan -- yes. >> all the way back. >> you come with bonified credentials in foreign policy. let's talk about what this speech really indicated on syria. it seemed to me what mitt romney presented today was not to directly arm some. he was talking about working through allies. >> if you read the speech he'll work with allies to see that arms are provided. it's a passive voice. what i heard them saying to you is we'll be more active in terms of trying to make that happen. i think the longer we wait to do it, the harder it will be. >> you would go farther than mitt romney. >> i would. >> the administration is worried about the weapons getting into the wrong hands. >> it is a legitimate concern. what you have to do is focus heavily on identifying those you are prepared to work with, create tests for them. provide the weapons that would create less concern for us like anti-tank weapons as opposed to anti-air weapons. see how they operate
administration has been able to come up with is persuade people to leave the labor force. mr. obama managed to drive down number of adults that want a job. that is a great way to drive unemployment down. i would think the other guest would consider that. melissa: gary, last word before we go. >> look the employment rate has risen in last few months. there is no doubt about that. i don't understand this labor force participants rate idea. yes the participation rate is lower when the economy was expanding strongly. yes, that's true but the fact of the matter is, employment has been rising over the last three years, period. it is just not rising fast enough to put a big a dent in unemployment rate as we would all like to see, period. melissa: gentlemen, great discussion. thanks for coming on. have a great weekend. >> bye-bye. >> take care. melissa: forget "carmageddon". people in california may not be able to drive in the first place. you remember we told you yesterday how pipeline and refinery shutdowns have caused a spike in prices and even a gas shortage in the state. well, get this. the av

for the right to work legally under a new obama administration policy called deferred action for childhood arrivals. the california law builds on that policy and will now allow the department of motor vehicles to issue licenses to illegal immigrants as long as they meet certain criteria. they have to have crossed the border before they were 16, have been in the u.s. continuously for the past five years, be under 30 years of age and enrolled in school or a certified training program. >> the requirements, i have to take... >> i think it's okay just because it wasn't their choice when they were brought into the country. so it's only fair for them to be able to get a driver's license. >> reporter: while some argue that california should leave immigration issues to the federal government, the law drew bipartisan support even among those opposed to illegal immigration. >> i think we should encourage people to come over here legally but we also have a lot of illegal people doing work for us. and i think punishing people for something that happened when they were a kid is improper. >> reporter: no

critique of obama as leading from behind, which was from an unnamed administration official at the end of a 8000 word new yorker magazine piece last year. it has become a staple of republican critics of the president's foreign-policy. there are some real differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. those are substantive. romney has called a rush of the number one geopolitical foe of the u.s. promised to the surprise even of his own advisers. he has continued to emphasize that and to say that vladimir putin will get nothing from me. barack obama has emphasized as one of his major foreign-policy accomplishments a reset with russia that has enabled us to get more done, whether it is sending supplies into afghanistan through the northern route, which has become a much more significant issue as there have been problems with pakistan that made it difficult for us to get in and out, or having a new nuclear arms limitation agreement with russia. so that's a substantive difference. there are others as well. when it comes to some of the core middle east issues, how to st

the obama administration over their approach to syria. he was clear he would be sure that syrian rebels got the weapons they need, the heavy weaponry they so desperately need to take on the gun ships an tanks causing civilian casualties. he portrayed the struggle as more about checking iran's influence in that region, but he also pointed out one of the major contradictions the white house is currently facing, the violence extremists are flowing in, but the need to vet the kind of assistance it would go to. >> most libyans have not been following the presidential campaign. the attention has been on the country's own political situation. on sunday, the national assembly voted out the prime minister it had selected less than a month ago go. libya is now facing a political vacuum at a time of serious threats an instability. but one line from mitt romney's speech that would stand out to libyans, he said he would vigorously pursue those responsible for the september 11th attackn the u.s. consulate in benghazi. libyan officials here have praised the obama's administration response to the attack an
praised the obama's administration response to the attack and have you wowed to work together with the united states to bring the perpetrators to justice and to confront the rising islamic extremist threats in the eastern part of the country. but officials also at the same time have said that this is a very thin line. if the united states were to take any action that would infringe on libya's national sovereignty, that could be damaging to relations between both countries and cause internal turmoil. >> of course lots of questions for mitt romney about that foreign policy plan, the new polls, the debate performance, and today our wolf blitzer has a live interview with mitt roy in that at 6:00 p.m. eastern only on cnn. and thursday it's the vice presidential debate. live coverage starts at 7:00 p.m. eastern, 4:00 pacific. >>> his nickname is fearless felix. he's getting ready to jump from the edge of space. 23 miles above the globe to be exact. felix baumgartner is getting ready to plummet to the earth to break a skydiving record. he'll leap from a specially built balloon and ca

. as yet what are the noteworthy aspects of the last four years in the obama administration how much policy has been driven from the white house? some presidents give lip service to the cabinet government and in power and their secretaries. obama seems to have gone pretty far the other way. so i'm curious to get a second obama term what we see the continuation of the pattern in which romney, how do you think that he would write things in terms of the relationship in the department and the white house? >> i think we have strayed some distance from the government in the sense that the white house staff has been built up with the lawyers of folks that had to cushion the president from the departments and agencies. sallai compare and contrast just be kind of low-level staffer under ronald reagan on the advanced staff and seeing the universe of high-profile kavanagh members who interjected at least from what i could see more directly with the president and now we have lawyers that kind of cushion the president and the deputy chief of staff of policy or whatever the case might be. and i think tha
